3. He does an excellent job covering needs, innovative ideas to aquire such I'm just not down with specific players (like Pouncey twins too).
4. If we are not to be concerned with specific player but focus on position then a better Texans draft to me would be as follows, with power RB over change of pace RB-
priority #1 FS - Taylor Mays, USC (E) or Earl Thomas, Texas (YTD)
priority #2 RB - Toby Gerhart, Standford (E) or Ryan Mathews, Fresno State (E)
priority #3 C - J.D. Walton, Baylor (E) or Maurkice Pouncey, Florida (YTD)
priority #4 DT- LaMaar Houston, Texas (E) or Stephen Paea, Oregon State (YTD)
priority #5 CB - Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, Indiana (E) or Walter Thurmond, Oregon (IR)
priority #6 OG - Thomas Austin, Clemson (E) or Marshall Newhouse, TCU (E)
prioirty #7 RB - Andre Dixon, Connecticut (E) or Brandon James, Florida (IR)
E = Eligible
YTD = Yet To Declare
IR - Injured Reserve
I just for the life of me cant see why anyone that has watched Mays play would want to draft him. If he even goes in the first round it will be on potential only. He has a better chance at making an impact at OLB than he does at S in the NFL. At least at OLB his size/speed can be utilized for blitzing and his poor coverage instincs wont be as obvious as they would in the deep middle of the feild.
Like the highlighted players. But like mine more of course.
I just dont want to resign Pitts at his age and coming off a major injury. Think that money could be better spent somewhere else. OD situation reminds me too much like Robinsons. It seems like there are to many good options out there that are young, healthy and would come at a substantialy cheaper price to take that chance.
